by Wahid Adnan Silver Note Writer [C:  W: 0 N: 61] (550)

The working environment of these ship breaking yards is very bad. The safety measures taken by the labourers are below standard. Huge casualties occur here every year. Statistics says that near about 600 labourers killed and another 4000 injured or disabled in the last 10 years. Most casualties occur due to blasts of holds filled with gases, fire caused from highly inflammable materials and accident committed during handling the heavy metal plates.
